UK - Shure has introduced the Axient Digital ADX5D Portable Receiver - a dual-channel, portable wireless slot receiver that ‘provides superior RF performance, spectral efficiency, and transparent audio quality’.
“We designed the ADX5D Portable Receiver to incorporate the same innovative wireless technology that Axient Digital is known for, all in a portable form factor for professionals in the field or on-the-go,” said Nick Wood, senior wireless category director, at Shure. “We took the time to ensure this new addition to the Axient Digital family exceeds the rigors of everyday use and lives up to Shure’s reputation for quality that we’ve earned over the past 96 years.”
Axient Digital has been used on some of the biggest live stages across the world. Since it was designed for professional productions that demand maximum signal stability, ADX5D is able to support the most extreme wireless needs. True digital diversity technology helps significantly mitigate the potential for signal fades or interference that can cause dropouts, says the company. Further, it also supports wide dynamic range, AES-256 encryption, and 2ms latency from the mic transducer to the analogue output. A wide tuning band ensures reliable operation in any environment.
ADX5D functions as an on-the-go wireless receiver, offering the power and performance of Axient Digital – but in a portable form factor. It can easily slot inside and connect directly to the audio inputs of a professional broadcast camera, enabling streamlined connectivity of the two devices. The portability also provides convenience and flexibility, especially for film and TV sound mixers who often have discrete powering, audio-routing, and/or RF-distributing gear in their portable recording bags.
ADX5D incorporates ShowLink, which allows for real-time control of all transmitter parameters, interference detection, and avoidance (see country-specific functionality restrictions below). Suitable for remote, hybrid, or on-location sound environments, ShowLink makes it easier to use back-up frequencies and provide remote control directly to the linked transmitters. Compatibility with Wireless Workbench supports efficient control and configuration, optimal spectrum management, and frequency coordination.
“The ADX5D Portable Receiver is an incredible tool to have at my disposal while on set,” said Jon Ailetcher, CAS, production sound mixer on Chicago PD. “We move very fast on our show and with ADX5D I can easily transition from my cart to my bag, whether we’re on location or in the studio, without affecting my workflow.”
